Holiday Look LineUp

Oh WOW! The Holidays are in full swing and we are all rushing around trying to get trees up, gifts bought & wrapped, parties attended, cards out & cookies baked…all the while trying to maintain our sanity and Holiday Cheer! That was a complete mouthful and just made we want to go pop a 5 Hour Energy, or just take a nap.

Anyways…you have enough to stress out about rather than worrying about what the heck you’re going to wear to all of these Holiday Soirees. Enter me…call it my little gift to you this Christmas season…You are Welcome ūüôā

I love this look…it’s right up my funky alley! ¬†The faux leather skirt is playful, the sequins add some holiday cheer and the beanie is the cherry on top! ¬†This look can be dressed up with a black blazer, heels and of course…loosing the beanie.

The look is so sophisticated and glam! ¬†If you want to get away from dresses and try something new…a white blazer or off white blazer is your answer. ¬†Pair leather (or faux leather) leggings for pants and glitter heels and you will be ready to conquer any party ūüôā

This outgoing look is appropriate for many ages. ¬†Whether you’re in your 20’s or even your 50’s…this look is very versatile. ¬†It’s simple but yet is a statement. ¬†Add a blazer or jacket if you don’t want to show so much skin

Or instead of a Blazer or Jacket…add a Furry Coat! This wine color is so festive and adds a right “Pop” to this look!

This look is classy and trendy! ¬†The gold lame Bomber jacket is perfect to pair with these rayon jogger pants. ¬†This jacket is versatile to mix with jeans later. ¬†I’m using it as my top here but it can be put over a simple flowy cami too.

Awwww…this is my Carrie Bradshaw look and I felt so fun and flirty in this look! ¬†I think everyone needs at least one tulle skirt in their closet. ¬†This skirt is so versatile and can be worn in so many different ways. ¬†I think that needs to be another blog post on it’s own…stay tuned…!

Fur Vest

¬†Hey Hey Girls! ¬†How is everyone’s week going? ¬†We’ve made it half way which is a bonus cuz I am strug-a-lin this week! ¬†Can’t seem to get it together…think I am on a Thanksgiving break hangover…if I am this bad…what’s my Christmas break hangover going to be like? YIKES! ¬†Enough about my issues…what about Fashion and Fur Vests! ¬†Yes sirrry! I’m a sucker for a good fur vest and I get a ton of use out of them during the Fall and Winter. ¬†A heavier vest (like my Big Blue here) is a perfect alternative to a coat and it¬†is FFFUUUUNNNNN! ¬†I think I got this last year at one of my favorite boutiques here in Tulsa called Stash Tulsa (check them out at http://www.stashtulsa.com/). ¬†This baby is super warm and fashionable in the same sense. ¬†I just think a fur vest is a great accent piece to spice up anything you’re wearing and being warm in the same sense. Pair it with jeans, a skirt or a dress. ¬†And you can get a fun one without breaking the bank too… ¬†Yes Please!

Psssst..I love mixing blues and blacks…I think it is very sophisticated and this cream Lush blouse from Nordstroms helps to add just the right off-set to the dark colors.

Shopping Local with Dainty Hooligan Boutique

¬† ¬† Can you believe it’s 3 days until Thanksgiving? Holy Moly…I still need to buy a turkey and get all the fixns and yes, I am that person that goes to the grocery store the Wednesday before Thanksgiving hoping and praying to find a thawed turkey…Yikes!

So, enough of that scary talk. ¬†After Thursday is the notorious Black Friday (duh)…which is now being out shown by Brown Thursday. ¬†I mean, who does that? ¬†Open their stores on Thanksgiving…talk about treating your employees like crap (for those of you that have to work on Thanksgiving, I am apologizing for your employer). And what happened to just letting Thanksgiving being Thanksgiving…now Christmas is out before Halloween (don’t get me started on that…that’s a whole other blog post) and we are holiday shopping on Thanksgiving ūüôĀ ¬†But regardless, I hope you guys will refrain from rushing to the stores on Thursday and enjoy every last wonderful moment with your families/friends and hold out until Friday! ¬†Enough of that too! So, did you know that this Saturday is Small Business Saturday? ¬†A very important retail day to support our Small Businesses like boutiques! And what better way than to support “shop small” ¬†than to shop a local boutique like Dainty Hooligan! Am I right?!?!? So, I had the privilege to work with Tara at DH and feature some super fun looks for the upcoming Holiday Season! ¬†Tara and her crew provide great customer service and the selection and prices are amazing! ¬†They have several locations in Oklahoma (including here in Tulsa) as well as Texas and have a great¬†Website¬†http://www.daintyhooligan.com/

These Wine Faux Leather Skinnies are the Cat’s Meow! They fit like a glove, were not binding or tight and were under $35! ¬†I love this Off the shoulder Sleek Top in Black¬†paired with them! ¬†These Faux Leather skinnies will also look amazing with the big chunky sweater (they also come in black)! Psssst…they also crept inside my bag to come home with me ūüôā

So this Saturday…please be sure to “Shop Small” and support our local small businesses like Dainty Hooligan

Happy Turkey Day!

Over the Knee Boots



Hey Hey! ¬†It’s Thursday…yet again and I see the dawn of the weekend coming over the horizon! ¬†Have you noticed that I am always happy for the arrival of the weekend? ¬†I mean, who isn’t? Right?

So today class I want to talk about the soooooo popular, must have, get them in your closet now…OVER THE KNEE BOOTS! ¬†And no, I’m not talking about the ones that Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman…I mean, well you could get those but I wouldn’t recommend them for everyday wear…maybe in the privacy of your own home or maybe a night out at the Club…dance club that is…not Country Club, just to clarify. ¬†Anyways…back to Over the Knee Boots or OTK as we # them on Instagram. ¬†They are all the Fashion rage for this Fall/Winter and I happen to have acquired 4 pairs for the season…excessive? I think not! ¬†I “need” brown, black and then of course taupe and need heeled and flat. ¬†However, with the Frugal way that I like to shop…it is VERY practical to have multiple pairs (insert a wink here). OTK can be worn with everything from skinny jeans…to skirts…to dresses…and if you want to be BOLD to shorts (I did say BOLD). So, go get ya some…and if you have 1 pair…go get ya some more (insert another wink).

French Grunge

fullsizerender


Hey Hey Girls! ¬†How’s everyone’s week rolling? ¬†It’s almost over my friends…hang in there for ONE.MORE.DAY.

So, since it’s the 1st day that it hasn’t been like 80+ degrees here in Tulsa, American…I finally feel I can start talking about actual FALL looks…as in jackets! ¬†And I had so much fun with this look. ¬†I woke up one day and said “I think I want to look French today.” ¬†Random right? ¬†Well, I have this adorable new scarf that I picked up from our new Madewell store here in Tulsa and knew the right pairing with it would be a black and white stripe top. ¬†Cha Ching! ¬†But, I also love to look a little grunge too…and knew it would be rocking with a Bomber Jacket, so I added those two little flairs and Wa-La…”French Grunge” is born! Okay, Okay…maybe people already rock this look…but I just officially named it…okay okay…I know that there is “technically” already a “French Grunge” named look so maybe I’m just rocking it then?That’s better ūüôā

The Midi Dress

fullsizerender_1


Hey Hey! ¬†How is everyone’s week going? ¬†How about the fact that it’s almost over and the weekend is knocking on the door is how it’s going? ¬†Woot!

So today class, we are going to talk about the Midi Dress. ¬†“Midi”…what does that mean you say? ¬†Well, in technical “Fashion” terms…”Midi” means it (the dress, skirt or even a coat) comes Mid length between your knees and ankles…or somewhere in that realm of your leg. ¬†And Midi’s are all the rage this Fall! BUT…yep, there’s always a BUT. ¬†You gotta be careful when wearing a Midi, especially if you’re a shorty (like me). ¬†So here is some “Midi 101” for “Shorty’s” (and if you’re tall, well then you can just do whatev you like):

  1. Pay attention to the shape. ¬†Go for a cinched in waist, a belted waist or an A-Line silhouette. ¬†If you select a length that is slightly above your calves (or get it altered to that length) it shows more shape of your legs, therefore creating a more “thinner/taller” look
  2. Fabric. Don’t go for a heavy fabric Midi if you’re short, go for lighter, flowy, breezy fabrics
  3. Wear a heeled shoe like pumps/heels, booties or tall boots

And this concludes the end of our “Midi” lesson class ūüôā

A Day of Pink

img_0727


Hello Lovelies! I hope everyone is having an amazing week and October! ¬†And if you live here in Tulsa, it doesn’t feel much like October with 80 degree temps still…yuck. ¬†Speaking of October…it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month (I’m sure you knew that already) but Tulsa and Oklahoma for that reason are really big on Breast Cancer Awareness Month…especially because we have an amazing organization called Oklahoma Project Woman. ¬†If you don’t know about the wonderful work they do and the assistance they provide for women who can not afford mammograms or do not have insurance to cover the cost of mammograms, surgeries and medical cost associated with Breast Cancer…I highly recommend you check it out because Breast Cancer has touched us all in some form or fashion whether you’re a survivor yourself, had a loved one or friend or a friend of a friend who was a survivor or lost the fight. ¬†I lost my Grandmother to Breast Cancer. ¬†And it was so difficult because she knew for a full year that she had the disease but because of her religious beliefs chose not to seek medical help and relied up on the power of prayer to heal her. ¬†Once we found out, it was way too late for intervention. ¬†We lost her in less than a month. ¬†Now, I don’t want to get into that subject…that’s a Blog post in it’s own that I just don’t care to tackle based up on argumentative beliefs and views and I frankly don’t want a possible all out war on the subject so I’ll just leave it alone and focus on the fact I don’t have my Granny here anymore. ¬†She was the most vibrant and tough woman I have ever known. ¬†She was a rodeo trick rider and performer that was still performing into her 70’s when the Cancer took ¬†her from us. ¬†I feel so very honored that I had the privilege to be in her presence and learn so many life lessons from her as well!

***My Granny…Lenore Rowe***

So, enough of that as I’m wiping my tears. ¬†I had the huge honor of attending 2 of Oklahoma Project Woman’s events this past Monday….the Pink Ribbon Lunch at Aberson’s and the Pink Ribbon Dinner at Southern Hill’s! ¬†So if you’re asking what these events are…well, I’m gonna tell ya!

The Pink Ribbon Lunch was held at Aberson’s¬†(a very high end Women’s and Men’s clothing store here in Tulsa…it’s FABULOUS!). ¬†The event was a ladies luncheon with a mini fashion show featuring Ralph Lauren’s Luxury Line especially for this event! ¬†So So amazing!

That night was the Pink Ribbon Dinner at Southern Hill’s Country Club. ¬†The dinner featured a Live Auction of some amazing items as well as a full fashion show featuring the Ralph Lauren Line for Aberson’s. ¬†The line has a Western Flare with detail to beading, statement necklaces, and belts!

Not yo’ Momma’s Jogging Pant

fullsizerender_2


Now it’s Thursday! ¬†And look at me, 2 days in a row with a Blog Post…I am ENGUEGO! Can you hear the sizzling???

So, I’m trying to keep up with the questions & messages that I receive regarding my posts about my favorite things. ¬†One of those favorite things is Joggers, track pants or both…whichever you wanna call them. ¬†I wear them regularly…I mean I have like 8 of them…so I could wear Joggers everyday of the week and not have to do laundry to keep wearing them. ¬†Thinking maybe I have a little obsession? ¬†Not necessarily. ¬†I mean, what’s the difference in having 8 pairs of joggers versus having 8 pairs of LuLuLemon pants…well, several actually…1) The joggers I buy are wwwwaaaayyyyyy cheaper, 2) They are wwwwwaaaayyyyyy more forgiving than a pair of LuLu’s stretched across my booty! ¬†3) I can dress them Up or Down. ¬†4) They are wwwwaaaayyyyy more fashionable and don’t make me look like I live at the gym. ¬† Need I say more?

So, Joggers these days are not like the Joggers of yester-years! ¬†You know, those unflattering add 10lbs make you look frumpy but yet OH SO COMFY jogging pants we used to wear (or maybe we secretly still do, just in the comfort and safety of our own home?) that you could buy at like Wal-Mart or Academy for $5.00 a pair. ¬†Believe me, I’m not hating or making fun…I wore them regularly in college…along w/ PJ pants…even to class! I just don’t think my hubby would appreciate me sporting those around the house as a modernized version of a Mu Mu. ¬†But, to each his or er her own. ¬†No judgement here….just sharing what wouldn’t fly in the Herburger Hacienda of Fashion! ¬†Seriously, it’s not fashionable all the time…I mean how can wiping a 6 year old’s bottom be fashionable? ¬†It can’t people. TMI you say? ¬†Just keeping it real.

So, back to the new and updated Joggers! ¬†Joggers are an updated, fashionable version of those old Jersey, no shape¬†Jogging pants. ¬†They still carry the comfort level but add style and versatility! ¬†The shape is a slimmer cut leg that tapers towards the ankle. ¬†Joggers come in all sorts of materials from Jersey knit, to cotton, to rayon to spandex blend and you can rock them with tenni’s, booties, flip flops, Birkenstocks, flats, wedge tenni’s, oxfords and even heels! ¬†Yes, Joggers can rock with heels! ¬†And I’m sure you’ve seen that guys are now rocking Joggers as well, and they make adorable ones for the Little’s as well. ¬†So you, your hubby and your kiddos could be a Jogger wearing family…I’m visualizing family photo in joggers! Okay, maybe not…but I would try it.

See below on how some of my fellow Blogger Sista’s who got it right! Dress them up with a leather jacket or a blazer!
